Issue

Insufficient water quality

The quality of the water is insufficient.

An undesirable aquatic environment often arises in shallow water bodies and waterways during warm periods. This happens because of stratification and excessive growth of duckweed, algae and predominant plant growth.

Solution

StagnoCurl

The StagnoCurl is a ceramic tube with an air pump to bring stationary water in motion, horizontally. This causes circulation in the water and mixes the water. Thus providing a more favorable bio-diversity. A better bio-diversity of the water ensures that stratification and excessive growth of duckweed, algae and predominant plant growth occurs less, improving the water quality of shallow water bodies and waterway.

Pros

  • The solution can be applied on several scales.
  • No external energy source needed because of use of solar energy.
  • The solution is fish friendly because no moving parts are in contact with water.
  • Equipped with sensors to make allow monitoring of the water quality.
  • The maintenance and management costs of the solution are very little.
